Essential Hulk vol. I

Over 500 pages collecting Hulk #1-6 and Tales to Astonish #60-91 by Stan Lee, John Romita Sr., John Buscema, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby and others. For those who don’t know, the Hulk is a brilliant scientist who was accidentally transformed into a monster (think Jekyll and Hyde). I didn’t expect much from this collection: the B&W art kills the fun of Marvel comics for me and Hulk often isn’t much more than “Smash!” although it was interesting to see just how chaotic the early comics were where no one seems to have any idea about what his powers are, what causes the change and how intelligent he is.
